Conducting User Research for Startups
Wednesday, February 27th from 5:30pm - 9:30pm
Diane Loviglio, Resident Mentor at 500 Startups and ex-Mozilla User Researcher
Whether you're conducting research for a well established product/service or a startup that hasn't fully penetrated the market yet, you're going to have to talk to past, current and potential customers, so you might as well use that time effectively.
5:30 - 7:00 PM: Introductions and defining the problem you want to solve
7:00 - 7:30 PM: Planing your research and defining who you want to talk to
7:30 - 7:45 PM: Pizza Break
7:45 - 9:30 PM: Writing the interview script and conducting the actual interview
Who should attend? Founders, Product Marketers, UX Designers and Community Managers who want to interview people to gain a deeper understanding of their motivations, values, needs and behaviors. Once you understand your users - or potential users - you can build better products and know how marketing messages will resonate with them most.
